Cell phone reported lost or stolen

Hi, I own an iPhone 7 blocked by AT & T and I need the unlock code.

It turns out that the cell phone was neither lost nor stolen.

How do I get this unlock code?

If it's been previously reported as lost or stolen the IMEI may be blacklisted. You will have to call AT&T to have it removed from the blacklist before you'll be able to unlock it.

I reported my phone as missing now that I found it, it has the Find My Device on it saying I need to put down a pin. Which I don't know since my password was a password.

@elmo_433   Did you go back into “find my iPhone “ on a secondary device and remove the remote lock?

iPhone/iPad have a screen unlock 6 digit code.  It’s back up to fingerprint and you are supposed to know it and required at times to enter it.
